Wayward Pines Sneak Peek: The First Generation Demands a Reckoning

This week on Fox’s Wayward Pines — in the midseason thriller’s penultimate hour (airing Thursday at 9/8c) — the leaders of the First Generation seek out their new sheriff, demanding a reckoning. But will Ethan give the kids what they want?

As seen in the above featurette from the episode “A Reckoning,” members of the first class at Wayward Pines Academy are adamant about Sheriff Burke enforcing the town’s laws by executing those responsible for the “terrorist” attack on the perimeter fence. Of course, the increasingly agitated, unsure and anxious Pilcher sides with the First Generation’s cause.

“I have a very special place in my heart for [Episode 9],” showrunner Chad Hodge previously told TVLine. “It’s an incredibly well written script by the Duffer brothers and directed wonderfully by Nimród Antal.” Similarly, Carla Gugino cited the episode as her favorite of the series.

Press play above to see how far Ethan might go in the name of maintaining a precarious balance in this bonkers burg!
